Raymond Felton Breaks Out


Raymond Felton put together his best game in a long time and quite possibly of the season Monday night. Felton scored 18 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3pt, 6-8 FT) as he was able to get into the paint and cause some problems for the Timberwolves' defense. The 18 points are the most Felton has scored in a game since he registered 20 against the Lakers January 26th.
Felton also had gaudy assist numbers, handing out eight of them as he found teammates on multiple occasions at the basket for alley-oop dunks. He stepped up on the defensive end, getting four steals and one block as he was able to limit the effectiveness of the flashy Ricky Rubio. Felton is the key to this team; when he plays well the Knicks get results.
